Been working on the exhaust, the dp needs to be a little longer though. My turbo cam should be here in a couple days or so that will be cool. Some of the exhaust is welded some is clamped so I can get it off easily

Went to the meet over the mountains, was fun, car didn't love the extra 450ish lbs going up 4000ft in elevation but we made it. I do love the ipd cam with the big turbo man the thing rips.

Don't smoke your clutches. Once you start slipping, you are burning things up.

You haven't hit fuel cut yet? (5V on the MAF)

IF you had access to a lift, it wouldn't be so bad. But on jack stands, hell nah.

I love the rusted-out look paint job. Paint surface looks pretty chunky/textured in the other pics - what did you use to achieve the effect? I may need to do something like this when my pickup conversion is done.
